4 Ways To Give Your House A Vintage Look 

In the last decade, the old school has made its way into the contemporary and modern look of a house, thus a vintage touch to a stylish house is the new trend of the day. The priceless antiques, the timeless paintings, the old school furniture pieces, timber flooring by timber flooring melbourne, and the natural accessories have always been there . All you need to be a little creative with them for your home to stand out. So how can you revel the vintage look of your home? Let’s look at these 4 remodeling ideas that can give the right amount of old-school and traditional look to your home.

Vintage Furniture Pieces For Your Living Room

One of the most classic furniture pieces of the vintage era is the chest, coffer, ark, or cassone, whatever you would like to call it. The wooden piece has intricate carvings and iron handles to add exquisiteness. It’s an old-time locker box and families used to save their precious belongings in it. To make it more functional, place it in the living room and it will act as a coffee table beside storing your stuff. Adorned your sofa seating with vibrant cushions and the walls with timeless paintings. On the side, a vintage rocking chair with an adorable cushion would effectively give the traditional vibes to your space. Recreate your indoor porch with old-fashioned wooden chairs and tables and place a pedestal fan on the corner for a perfect vintage look.

Cheers To The Vintage Corner Of Your House

To shift the whole perspective of a contemporary house with the vintage feel might be a difficult task and the mix and match and the transitional effects, at times, don’t create the look we wanted for our place. If you want to keep it simple. Try having a corner at your home that is completely vintage, with no modern paint, furniture, or accessories on it. And a cornered study area is the best option for it. Arrange your vintage study table with an old school desk and an old typewriter on it, for a more comprehensive look, adorn the table with the vintage globe. A vintage telephone and lamp on the bedside table would intensify your traditional design practices.

Embellish Your Walls With Antique Accessories & Lights

Give your walls a retro look with antique photo frames of different sizes. You can decorate your bedroom wall or the stair wall to hang wooden and iron frames. Add visual appeal to your walls with brass and nickel lighting fixtures. Introduce your walls with antique lanterns and roofs with long hanging chandeliers. These retro lighting accessories are easily available in salvage stores, or if you want to be creative, purchase new lights and give them a unique and timeless look.

Vintage Staircase Decore

The decorated staircase of a house builds its character. To inculcate a vintage look to your staircase, install a hypnotizing iron wrought banister if your staircase falls in the middle of the house. Or an elaborate corkscrew staircase to give your house early 19 century vibes. A mere change in the newel post and the handrails would bring the classical signature elegance to your home.

There is a huge misconception that vintage and old schools are all about rustic, stable, and dark shades of wood. Vintage can be vibrant too. It can blend with your contemporary patterns and accessories and break the monotony.

 

Discovering the woods

Cedarwood from the Atlas
Precious timber with thin yellowish sapwood and reddish heartwood with marked growth rings. Medium texture, straight or intertwined fibers, not very hard, easy to work, naturally resistant to rot, free from resin canals so it does not “cry”, modest resistance to impact, when fresh it gives off the characteristic scent of cedar. Used for building and naval constructions, external and internal fixtures, fine carpentry and cabinet making. Species of North African origin, used as an ornamental plant in parks and gardens.

Cedarwood from Lebanon
Precious wood with thin yellowish sapwood and light brown heartwood with marked growth rings, with characteristics and uses similar to the Atlas Cedar, but the plants lived in our climates produce a light, fragile wood, easy to bend and not very durable. Species of Middle Eastern origin, used as an ornamental plant in parks and gardens.

Turkey oak wood
Timber with a yellowish external part (sapwood) and a brown-pink internal part tending to purple or pink (heartwood), and well visible parenchymatic rays but higher and denser than oak and English oak. Hard, heavy, coarse texture, straight grain, very accentuated porosity, difficult to mature due to high shrinkage, difficult sawing and nailing, attackable by rot and woodworms if not treated, but heartwood not permeable to preservatives. The best is that of southern Italy, while that of central-north tends to embark and split. It is mainly used as firewood and sometimes for coarse carpentry, barrel staves, wheel spokes. In Italy it forms widespread woods in association with the downy oak.

Cherry Wood *
Precious wood, yellowish outside (sapwood) and inside with the characteristic reddish color, which tends to darken over time (heartwood), but not always clearly differentiated. It has a fine texture, straight grain, medium hardness, medium weight, matures without difficulty with a medium shrinkage and is easily workable and steam-bendable, but it is fragile, embeds easily and is attacked by rot and woodworms if not treated. To make the color turn red and make the sapwood uniform with the heartwood, it is steamed or immersed in lime water. The flame design is obtained with the tangential cut, Used for fine furniture, cabinet making, turning, cabinetry, floor strips (parquet) and sometimes musical instruments.

Cypress wood *
Precious wood, brown in color, with heartwood darker than sapwood, with an irregular outline. Fine texture, medium hardness, irregular grain, large knotty, to be aged slowly to avoid cracking, not easy to saw and plan, but it moves little over time and a high degree of finish is possible. It is devoid of resiniferous channels (so it does not “cry”) but rich in resin, and therefore very aromatic and naturally resistant to rot and woodworms, so it is particularly suitable for window frames and furniture (especially chests for storing clothes as the smell of wood kept moths away), as well as for lathe and cabinet-making works, and would also be interested in the coatings of the guardrails. As firewood, it has a very high calorific value. IS’ the typical ornamental plant of Tuscany since the time of the Etruscans, although in certain areas it has become inflated (some municipalities have prohibited new rows on the sides of private roads). It is spontaneous only in the San’Agnese Nature Reserve(Chianti Senese) , where it finds particular environmental conditions. Not to be confused with exotic species such as the Alaskan, Atlantic, Lawson Cypress.

TYPES OF WOODS

White fir wood
Undifferentiated cream white timber. Large and hard knots, devoid of resin canals and with evident annual rings. Medium texture, straight and regular grain, low hardness, low impact resistance, moderate shrinkage, easy seasoning and processing (if with few knots and without compression wood), joints with nails or screws are not very durable, while gluing and the painting is done easily. The durability is low, as it is easily attacked by rot and woodworms if not treated, and it is not very permeable to preservatives. Less valuable than spruce, it is used for ordinary furniture, building beams, flooring boards (parquet) and shipbuilding (once used for ship masts), not suitable for window frames. Present in Tuscany in some relict woods of the

Spruce wood *
Undifferentiated cream white wood, with the presence of resin canals (which can give rise to pockets included in the fabrics) and evident annual rings, sometimes wavy: in this case it is sought after for musical instruments. Fine texture, straight and regular grain, low hardness, low impact resistance, moderate shrinkage, quick and easy curing, easy processing, glues and dyes easily, but does not hold nails well, moves little with varying humidity, attackable by rot and woodworms if not treated, not very permeable to preservatives. The spruce, compared to the silver fir, is more valuable, lighter, more elastic, easier to work with and also more durable if kept dry. Used for ordinary furniture, cabinet making, musical instruments, packing cases, matches, not suitable for window frames. Wood fibers are woven to make mats; the bark, rich in tannin, is used for the tanning of the hides; by carving the trunk, the “pitch of Burgundy” is extracted, used for ointments for chilblains; the buds contain an essential oil used for bubble baths and sports massage. Spontaneous in the alpine areas, it is also found in gardens as a recovery of Christmas trees.

Field Maple Wood *
Wood not clearly differentiated, of a pinkish white or light pink color, with rings that are not evident and appreciated aesthetic effects (marbling), becomes shiny if polished. Fine texture, wavy fiber at the base of the stems, medium heaviness, but heavier than the other maples, hard, medium compact, homogeneous, elastic, good mechanical characteristics, high shrinkage and subject to embarking, but easy to work, easily attacked by rot and from woodworms if not treated. Generally destined for the production of firewood, it can sometimes have interesting sizes such as work wood for the production of small objects such as handles, tools, games, rifle butts. The pieces with wavy grain and without other defects can be used in lutherie for the realization of the backs of the bowed instruments, while the briar is used for pipes. Shrub or small tree widespread in the woods and scrublands.
